may gray


for our first spring in pasadena we kept hearing that we were avoiding the dreaded "may gray" which turns into "june gloom". we didn't really know what that meant, but we do now. we're smack in the middle of scenes like this one - this image is of our mountains (which usually look something like this) but you can barely tell because of this facinating marine layer that decends on pasadena every day.

I'm fond of the cloudy days as well. Reminds me of home.

Oh, and don't look now, but I think your Jays might be back...

Cafe - I've never experienced anything like it, so it is facinating to me.

AH - went for a great hike today, it was perfect weather!

Adam - this kind of haze is different than cloud cover from the east, although it does remind me of Ohio's winter gray. Go Jays Go! And the Tribe better beat the Yanks once this series.
